Bucky Barnes from Falcon and the Winter Soldier

This year’s Super Bowl had a lot of impressive moments. But for Marvel fans the most impressive moment was the teaser trailer for Disney+’s new line-up of shows starring familiar MCU actors. One of those actors, Sebastian Stan, is once again taking up the role of fan favorite James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes (Winter Soldier). Though photos from the show are few and far between, we do still have some ideas on what the costumes look like. And one of the clearest photos is of this everyday outfit for the former assassin and POW.

Black military-inspired boots and a black leather jacket give Bucky the same edge he’s had throughout the MCU while comfortable jeans and a grey t-shirt make let him blend in. A set of simple black leather gloves helps him hide his distinctive black and gold vibranium arm. Fans can take things a step further by getting a set of his dog tags from Etsy, though none currently listed match the props that Sebastian Stan shared on his Instagram while filming.

Pirate Jenny from HBO’s Watchmen

Pirate Jenny (Jessica Camacho) from the HBO series Watchmen is an anarchist at heart. She has joined The Watchmen to fight for justice by any means necessary. Her style is part functionality and part intimidation factor. A decent amount of crafting will need to go into the headpiece and mask. Luckily it is more ripping and tearing than sewing work.The bleached tee could be cut around the collar and stretched as desired. The fishnet hair net will need to go over your head and can be ripped liberally over the eyes. She has a dark smokey eye shadow peeking through the eye holes in her mask. The key to making this look work is expressing its been worn in. Use a close-up image of her face when making your mask so you can follow all the layers of fishnet and mesh it includes. May need some easy hand sewing for the thin layer of white mesh over her nose and mouth.
